"I'm not sure I can define success. I think if I get to the end of my life having hurt as few people as possible."

Do you agree?

Well, for me, it's leaving my corner of the planet in at least somewhat better shape than when I came into it. That means more than not hurting people - it means having a positive influence on family, friends, and those affected to some degree by our presence.

My Dad said success is the sum total of happy moments.
I concur.

I like to give and receive joy.
I would rather be remembered by those I made a positive difference in their life from a happy place:)

This is mine almost to a word. 

If the amount of time I spent truly happy (or content) is greater than the amount of time I spent unhappy then I did it right.   I would of course like to increase that ratio of happiness and joy as much as possible.

Mine are:

"Now is the time to do the right thing", and
"If not me, then who; and if not now, then when" and
"Smile at your partner and laugh at yourself".

Doing no harm is first.  Once you have that down, you can start living well.
